David Duchovny April 14, 2018 plays Broadway…

David Duchovny plays Broadway Comedy Club, Times Square NYC

Thank you to all that came and joined us for the event yesterday at the Broadway Comedy Club as well as this weekend’s activities. David and the Band were amazing, as were the crew that helped us set up and 50 fans that came from around the world. We missed many friends that could not make it to town. We love you all!!!

The weekend started Thursday night when an impromptu wine and pizza party started at our place. Just a few that were staying with us from out of town and some locals. After some drinks, we played the new X-Files Conspiracy Theory game.

This game is Cards Against Humanity meets X-Files meets Improvisation. I got the very first CONSPIRACY CARD that read “A distress call from a ship that was last seen March 15, 1937 was recently broadcast from the POLE OF INACCESSIBILITY” So that set the tone for many inappropriate X-Files fan fiction.

On Friday we had a more formal get together. While some were still traveling a few went out to the Mets Game and others came to our house in New Jersey.

David Duchovny plays Broadway Comedy Club, Times Square NYC

The band and crew started setting up as early as 10am. The stage at the Broadway Comedy Club was a perfect size – 25′ wide by 8′ deep – for an intimate event. David came in around noon to sound check and make final preparations.

At 1pm the doors opened and we started the party.

David took stage at 2pm with Colin, Pat, Mitch and Davis. They played a lot of Hell or High Water songs as Davis, the drummer played the tours in 2015, and some of 2016. Sebastian, who plays on the EVERY THIRD THOUGHT (and most know form the past major tours of Europe, US and New Zealand/Australia) album was previously engaged over seas.

This was a private party so we only took personal photos (no videos) during the first song. In the next few days we will have some professional photos for attendees to share.

One of the highlights of the show were some fun crowd interactions. David LOVED the fact that so many people at this show knew the words to his songs. After Passenger, he asked the crowd to sing the chorus without the band. We delivered. 50+ people singing with some decent harmonies sounded AMAZING. We wish we had that on video/audio.

We also got the world premier of song David and the guys wrote THIS week. Not going to say more about this at this time – out of respect for their writing process – but it was a very special moment. We tried to coax EL KABONG out of them to now avail.
The show wrapped with EVERYONE on their feet singing along to HELL OR HIGHWATER.
After the show we had a brief Meet & Greet where all got to pose for a photo and get something signed. Those will be made avail to attendees ASAP.

After the concert we moved down the block to our fave karaoke joint.

Of course there was that time Chris and I got together LOL

The party continued down the block at Alfie’s.

I want ALL to know how much I appreciate you and your friendship. I was overwhelmed with thanks and love that night. Combined with being ready to drop of exhaustion, I was quite emotional. THIS was a very special event because of you. David and his team shared their appreciation as well.

I have one request for all in attendance – be respectful of ALL in attendance. This was a perfect event and does not need any gossip or nonsense.

STAY POSITIVE and SPREAD THE LOVE

David Duchovny rocks out on Harry Connick Jr CBS talk show February 28, 2018 #everythirdthought

It is January 24, 2018. I’m sitting in my home office in New Jersey

If you are reading this it is now February 27 or later and we are in Sydney Australia on a ferry around the harbor or at the Zoo watching kangaroos and koala bears. Actually it’s February 28th (stupid date line, sorry not you, NBC show) here so I am probably driving to New Castle AU for the sixth of seven concerts. Tomorrow we fly to Brisbane.

The word is mum, although pics have been leaked before this. We were asked to take down our photos by the producers for now. We just got back from a taping of the Harry Connick Jr. talk show on CBS.

If you have seen the show airing it is now February 28, 2018 in America or later. We are now in Brisbane.

What did you think? We had a blast.

But as usual, we Duchovniacs can not just go to events without being part of the story ourselves, usually not on purpose.

So we get to the CBS studio doors of the Harry Connick Jr. Show (and quite a few others) on Manhattan’s west side.

We tell the guy at the door we are here for HARRY to see David Duchovny.

He points us to the security counter. We wait a few minutes. A PA form the show escorts us up in the elevator.

HI GUYS

We walk right past the band and many of David’s team. According to a few quick convos over heard in passing, sounds like they had just finished their sound check.

HAVE FUN, I THINK SHE WANTS US TO FOLLOW….

We shake a few hands, then walk down the hall. The PA gestures and invites us to hang out in a room about 3 doors down.

Inside is a wonderful spread of bites – MUCH nicer than I am used to as a bit actor in greenrooms at GMA and the Letterman show.

David’s producers and PR rep is inside. We say our hellos. About a minute goes by when one of the producers notices we are staying. Wait you guys are supposed to be with the audience.

Turns out we were in David’s private green room. This explains the nicer spread.

The producer’s personally escort us to studio level 2-3 floors down – to be honest I am completely lost at this point. These studio buildings are so big, if you don’t pay attention as you are escorted around you have no idea where you are.

We pass David in the hall. “Did you see the band?” We shakes hands. .

Hope I didn’t have a cold, cause if I did EVERY one has it by now.

We are now on studio level. 30 minutes before the rest of the audience will be ushered up and we join up with the rest of those form David’s party – mostly friends and family of the band.

I took these photos and tweet ‘BATTLE OF THE BANDS TIME”. We removed at the request of the producers as the exact air date was so far out in the future etc.

The interview was fun. I will post the video once it is online but Harry is great and the two really had a perfect conversation.

The highlight I think is when Harry jokes about David correcting HC about music. Reminds me of an exchange I had with the band at the NYC listening party and David joked that Pat corrected me.

SOMEONE (not us, but we know a guy lol) took this candid moment between segments right before the band plays.

The band plays on.

Half Life seems to be the new got to single for showcasing the new album. Most will understand why. Rumors out their that this song may be radio bound. It may be on by the time this post is made public.

SEE YOU DOWN UNDER AUSSIES AND KIWIS

(If we haven’t already by now lol)

Half Life Lyric Video

AUCKLAND My New Fave Show – Kiwis turn out in spirit for David Duchovny #EveryThirdThought

AUCKLAND My New Fave Show – Kiwis turn out in spirit for David Duchovny #EveryThirdThought

If this is how David, Colin, Pat, Mitch, Keenan (Not Tom) and Seb set the tone for this tour, we are all in for many treats.

The VIPs entered the venue with their spiffy VIP badges tagged with both New Zealand Shows – which included all in our crew but me.

I went to pay the meter and hopefully find some free internet when a wonderfully nice lady popped out of her camper van RV. She had recognized my DUCHOVNIACS VIP pass (created for fun by one of our own @TKKarma).

“You must be headed to the show”  

At first she didn’t recognize the image of 10 year old David on my tee, but after a brief conversation I was invited in for wine and cheese. Inside she and her husband – hilarious with perfect impressions of Brooklyn and Red Necks – regaled of floating around the world on their boat. I was impressed. Soon later their two friends from Auckland joined in on the fun. e joked about being lured into strangers lair. I joked the wine and cheese in the van was like candy and ice cream for adults. We were meant for each other.

We all walked over to the venue and entered as General Admission guests. I quickly found fellow Duchovniacs and enjoyed the opening solo act guitar singer, who was also named David. He was great and a big Duchovny fan in his own right.

Then it was time for David and the band. Now that we have two albums plus bonus tracks, which tracks does one select for the live show? Everyone in the group had a different favorite and yet another regret for songs we did not hear live. Yet! 

Either way I think we all agreed this was one of the best shows David and the guys have ever staged. Every tune hit, David’s voice was impeccable and the band was beyond having a blast.

We have already heard a number of the new songs live over the past years. Every Third Thought, Half Life and Stranger in the Sacred Heart.  All these tracks have been infused by collaboration with every band mates input from the recording sessions.

Maybe I Can’t, which I thought was a bit weak in Vancouver, was phenomenal.  It fell right into place to let us catch our breath from bouncing and head bobbing. What a beautiful execution.

Quite notable were the singles from Hell or Highwater. Of course I’ve heard these songs live now more than a couple dozen times. But just as the new album reflects on the band’s deeper collaboration with David, many of these tunes had a bit of an over haul for the better.

Let it Rain was faster than I can ever remember at previous shows. Passenger had an interesting new guitar flair from Pat. Hell or Highwater itself was as good or better as expected.

Expecting the new songs to be more featured, I was surprised they followed EVERY THIRD THOUGHT (Opening Song) with 3000, and then ended with Positively Madison Ave. However, no regrets, especially as Pat virtually steals the show taking us home with that extended guitar solo. Always a show man – I already put the guy on a pedestal few could live up to – Pat surpassed and had more than a few kiwi jaws dropping. As I tweeted he may have damaged the guitar playing so intensely.

THIS SHOW LEFT US WANTING MORE!!!!

One of the weaker moments (relatively) was When the Whistle Blows. Still amazing, but the live mix was a bit lacking in David’s voice. The bluesy, grizzly low growl vocal utilized by David in this rocker requires a bit more microphone, as the lower range of any voice does not project as well naturally. But the band was still on fire – aka “lit AF.” I was also near the front where David’s monitors are so it’s possible the fans further back heard a better mix. Those of us that know the album rank “Whistle” as one of the best new songs. I’m probably being a bit picky here but it is worth noting, as I have so little to pick apart from this show as an amateur “critic”.

Of course I fear writing this next section (Only because it is not about a song David wrote)

Perhaps the true highlight of the evening, as the band comes back for a mini encore set, the guys play a rock band equivalent of the orchestra warming up. It is a cluster of tone, with cymbal rolls and subtle riffs. Mitch has set down the base for a guitar as he starts that simple chord pattern, akin to Tom Petty’s free falling. We are transported as Pat lays down some dissonant riffs, that simultaneously seem out of place and perfect. Musically there is a story of love and conflict. Then David sings, perhaps the best we have heard him ever. Sebastian later lays in some light percussion. By the end the band is rocking out.

As at the listening party, as I reheard via digital download of the album and as I am even now writing this little passage, I am moved to moist eyes listening / thinking to this amazing song.

This is how I experience Spiral.

A few were disappointed we did not get Marble Sun. My biggest regret was not hearing Last First Time live, yet.

There are so many gems that have not been played live yet, and old faves missed. We now are just starting to feel the angst of a Beatles or Stones fan that wishes for their lesser known favorite to appear on a set list.

Funny moment was when David and the band shared verses in The Weight (Cover for song by The Band). David put the microphone in the face of a young lady with no clue about the lyrics. I love their cover but have never understood the craze folks get for this song. I don’t know the words well either. But this is the MOST IMPORTANT SONG OF ALL TIME it seems for some.

Colin wowed all with his cover of Don’t Dream it’s Over by Crowded House. David said this song was too high for him but the band wanted to make sure they do a local band hit. David danced and entertained the crowd while the band played.

Like Europe, internet woes are keeping us from uploading faster. But we are trying. MUCH MORE to come… Also follow us to see some cool photos and videos of our amazing adventures in NEW ZEALAND and AUSTRALIA.
